(SOUNDBITE) (English) ARSENAL COACH UNAI EMERY, SAYING: "Our first target is to win.

Afterwards, of course if we score, when you score playing matches like the one tomorrow, we can also take a good advantage with this goal, but we know it's going to be very difficult because they can score one, two or more goals because they have a lot of attacking players with this quality.

And we need to defend well but also use our attacking players in the attacking moments to score and the mentality tomorrow is playing the match thinking we will win." STORY: Arsenal coach Unai Emery on Wednesday (April 17) vowed his team won't be solely focusing on defending a 2-0 first leg lead against Napoli, saying his team would seek to play positively and win the game in Naples.

Napoli are bidding to stay on as Italy's sole representative in European soccer after Ajax knocked out Cristiano Ronaldo-led Juventus out of the Champions League on Tuesday.
